tune my weaker eye spit white
hold the world up all day
she's blue in the face again
paracetamol
burn the darkness all away
and drinking kitchen paint
to dye the winter i
hope we'll never see again


deaf and dumb with the lights on
deaf and dumb with the lights on
married by signs
married by signs ah ah


personal holloway
six month linen
it's safe to say we are alone
suburban suicide
watching night come amber
it's all so temporary


deaf and dumb with the lights on
deaf and dumb with the lights on
deaf and dumb with the lights on
married by signs
married by signs
married by signs


move a little way forward
move a little way now
move a little way forward
move a little way now
bleed life breathe life
could be a better plan
could be a better plan
could be a better plan
could be a better plan
could be a better plan
could be a better plan

Do you feel the way you hate
Do you hate the way you feel
Always closest to the flame
Ever closer to the blade
I am poison crazy lush
Built these hands to lift me up
We are servants to our formulaic ways
I'm s c r e a m i n g s d a i s i e s
From 14 miles away
I've got my own time
Got it all today
Make up your mind
I need some help
To find this mind


Limbo this and limbo that
You were this and you were that
Ever know that what you fear is what you find
This Indian summer
I signed my life away
There's a greedy fly in here
And I fly away (need some help)

Warm sun feed me up
I'm leery loaded up
Loathing for a change
And I slip some
Boil away

Swallowed followed
Heavy about everything but my love
Swallowed sorrowed
I'm with everyone and yet not
I'm with everyone and yet not
I'm with everyone and yet not

Just wanted to be myself
Hey you said you would love to try some
Hey you said you would love to die some
In the middle of a world on a fishhook
You're the wave
You're the wave
You're the wave

Swallowed borrowed
Heavy about everything but my love
Swallowed hollowed
Sharp about everyone but yourself
Swallowed oh no
I'm with everyone and yet not
I'm with everyone and yet not
I'm with everyone and you're not
I'm with everyone and yet

Piss on self-esteem
Forward busted knee
Sick head
Blackened lungs
And I'm a simple selfish son

Swallowed followed
Heavy about everything but my love
Swallowed oh no
I'm with everyone and yet not
I'm with everyone and yet not
I'm with everyone and yet not
Got to get away from here
Got to get away from here
Got to get away from here
Got to get away from here
I miss the one that I love a lot
I miss the one that I love a lot
I miss the one that I love a lot
I love

Iron lung I know you well
Deal with you like a bad spell
See the trail moon burns
red stripe and the vicadin


You were the only one
I'm not defenseless
In the afternoon as the light dims
Build a life out of all this semtex
You're the brightest one
You were the center
The perfect opposite of what you asked for


It's just not one way A negative factor
With all these wasps out
I'd better take cover
Copper tongue
beam me up
Lonely without my impediments
Start to save what we used to steal
Walking on gelatine
I never noticed you you were the brightest one


YOU WERE WIDE OF ME JUST LIKE THE ENGLISH SUN
You caught the light again
in a perfect way
The biggest threat of all
is in the alleyway


You're the demon seed you're the factor
Feel better with a little bit of plaster
It's not just one way A negative factor
With all these wasps out better take cover
There's all the pain
in the way she talks


All the pain in the way she walks
All the pain in her fatal charm
All the pain in her arms

Wherever you are
you will carry always
Truth of the scars
and darkness of your faith


Slowly move on
How did we get to here
It all went wrong
gravity claiming all your tears


Everything looks
so much better now
You will get yours
You have no right
to ask me now


You were never that around
I have missed
Reality daytrips and your
suit me suit me ways
Turn out the light switch
we've been awake for days
And no-one's coming round
here no more
You will get yours
You have no right
to calm me down
You were never that around
I have missed
Cold contagious


all the might mighty men
What you save is what
you lose out in the end
Cold contagious


Paint your perfect day
I don't miss this
I'm better off by the way
deeply grounded
You will get yours
Cold contagious


all the mighty mighty men
What you save is what you lose
out in the end
Cold contagious

strange zoo
strange blaze
douse my head in flames
coming through got to get some
happiness is a bad son
forceps
kitchen tools
deconstruct your every move
feels better when you're here
guillotine just got here

back bend
back break
please yourself to make it rate
live it all at your own cost
so many just got lost
leaning for fire
leaning to fire
leaning to fire

here's tomorrow man
best of my ability
chasing what i can
here's tomorrow man

instinct
bare boned
light it up
take it home
you will be all things
you'll get what you bring
leaning to fire
leaning to fire
leaning to fire

here's tomorrow man
best of my civility
chasing what I can
here's tomorrow man
best of my ability
chasing watercans
here's tomorrow man
here's tomorrow man

with our own tongue
with our own tongue

here's tomorrow man
best of my ability
chasing what I can
here's tomorrow man
in our century
chasing what I can
here's tomorrow man
here's tomorrow man
here's tomorrow man

You gave me this
Made me give
Your silver grin
Still sticking it in
You have some machine soul machine
Soul of Machine

The longest kiss
Feeling furniture days
Drift madly to you
Pollute my heart; Drain

You have stolen me
Broken me
Stolen me
Broken me

All your mental armor drags me down
Nothing hurts like your mouth

Your loaded smiles and pretty just deserts
Wish it all for you
So much it never hurts

You have soul machine
Stolen me

All your mental armor drags me down
We can't breathe when we come around
All your mental armor drags me down
Nothing hurts like your mouth

We'd been missing long before
Never found our way home
We'd been missing long before
We will found our way

You gave me this
Made give

You have soul machine
Broken free

All your mental armor drags me down
We can't breathe when we come around
All your mental armor drags me down
Nothing hurts like your mouth

All your mental armor
All your mental armor
And your mouth...

always be there face i live with
always be there face i live with
abscess memory with broken fingers
all the fallen down angels raw pain distress
it's all
in the way we know that we could have it all
some
satellites of pain can't always be ignored
war on all sides
war on all sides

drink life as it comes straight no chaser
life as it comes straight no chaser
climb inside you away from strangers
building a system of alleys and motorways
it's all
in the way we know
we could have it all
some
satellites of pain can't always be ignored
it's all in the face of what we thought we knew before
war on all sides
war on all sides
war on all sides

keep on driving hair left morning wet
there's nothing like losing you
there's nothing like losing you
there's nothing like losing you
there's nothing like losing you

gave my love 2 thousand yesterdays
nothing is wrong i am always a little late
probably will probably won't
get this disease cut out of my throat
all of a sudden you come my way baby believer
i won't be saved by morning after
struggling my name slave turned to master

history moans
mouth of our father
history moans
mouth of our father
mouth of our father

edge of my bed benzedrine telephone
struggling to speak sicker than the sickest dog
falling faster than a liar's grin
we need to be saved from the shit we're in
i believe in you i have found the perfect way to bring me down

i won't be saved by all your yesterdays
piss on my grave piss on the the underlay

history moans
mouth of our father
history moans
mouth of our father
mouth of our father
mouth of our father

it's the movement we're after

i don't mind this
barefoot again
just a skin full
what we choose to forget
thinking you know
thinking you see all sides
casting a stone from your hand
yeah right

hell is where the heart is
synapse again
nothing more i can do
i have not done again

only worded nothing wrong
taking a cue from seven days
i bet you never listen
burning holes in all your clothes

razorblade suitcase
all the tricks of the trade
favorite ways you can lose
favorite ways you can hate

hell is where the heart is
synapse again
nothing more i can do
i haven't done again
i haven't done again

only worded nothing wrong
taking a cue for better days
i bet you never listen
burning holes in all your clothes
burning holes in all your clothes

hell is where the heart is
synapse again
nothing more i can do
i haven't done again
hell is where the heart is
where the heart is
where the heart is

all things will be fine
and it never seems to stop

wonder if i've met my wife

somewhere sometime
all things will be fine
and it never seems enough

wonder if i've met my wife
splinter left focus right
focus right

this mortal soil around me
mortal feeling i have found
surrounded by your glory
hold me now so that i never drown

and it never seems to stop
wonder if i've met my wife
splinter left focus right
focus right focus right focus right

We're just a wish away, 27th letter
Much maligned, beat me clever
Say you will, nevermind
Open up, open wide

Bonedriven, bonedriven
See we're taking all the life

To all pollutants, shave your face
We're all confusion, we're all the rage
Isolate, crowded out
All that's left, inside out

Heaven knows who walks away
Heaven knows who walks, who walks

Chorus:
Bonedriven, bonedriven
See we're taking all the life
Bonedriven, bonedriven
See we're taking all the life

I was wrong and I will wait
I was wrong and I will wait
I was wrong and I will, I will, I will wait

A thousand, a thousand lamps
Won't lift the dark
The rest of our lives
Might have already passed

Repeat Chorus
See we're taking all the life



Distant Voices / [unknown]

length: 6:40
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
I never thought I'd get away
Cause all there is is fading fast today
Maybe you sleep well in your head
Bring on the night let the cold moon burn instead

Cause I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself

Swallowing habits die real hard
And the coat she wore could not conceal the scars
Beneath the magic of her lace
Are a thousand lonely faces she can't place

'cause I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself
I can shine on
I'm gonna find my way to the sun
When I destroy myself
I can shine on
Shine shine shine

Sooner or later masturbate or lose
Stationary west way running from the view
In true the self destructive veins
We have found a way to keep the gifts that maims

Cause I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself
I can move on
I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself
I can shine on
Shine
I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself I can shine on
Shine shine shine
